Volunteers are critical to Chill’s operations! As a Chill skateboard mentor, you will work directly with a variety of youth ranging in ages from 10 to 18. This program will take place at Olney Manor Skatepark for three consecutive weeks in October 2018. During the youth skateboard program, our mentors act as a positive role model for youth.
We expect our volunteers to:
- Respect youth’s personal identities, boundaries, and abilities
- Work collaboratively with staff, volunteers, chaperones, and instructors
- Use appropriate language
- No inappropriate clothing/equipment containing images/language referencing drugs, alcohol, weapons, illicit language, nudity, etc.
- Dress appropriately for the sport/weather
